I had an idea….
I was thinking that it would be fun to post the foods that I ate for a week. I’m not sure if I’ll post the meals from Saturday or Sunday, but at least the weekdays. I will post ALL of my meals and snacks throughout the day. I hope you stay tuned to see what’s going into my belly!
So, here we go!…
Day 1- Monday
So, I’ll start with a little honesty… I SKIPPED BREAKFAST!!!… A lot of times in the morning, I’ll have oatmeal with my girls, but today I opted out. My plan was to do some yoga, but it’s hard to do that on a full tummy. So, I drank two glasses of water and about a half a cup of coffee (with stevia and almond milk).
So, my first meal for the day was a smoothie after yoga. You can find the recipe HERE.
I had quite a big lunch today, and the funny thing about my daytime meals today is that many of them are recipes that I’ve posted. I really do eat the food that I post! So here’s lunch. No Queso Quesadillas with salsa and guacamole. Also, I had a side of carrots and celery to dip in the extra hummus. My little one, Penny, didn’t really eat her lunch, so I got to eat hers, too! After eating both of our lunches, I was still hungry (it must have been the workout!), so I had a small salad with leftover creamy Thai salad dressing. I kept the salad simple today. It’s just romaine lettuce, carrots, green onions, sunflower seeds, and dried cranberries.
So, I was pretty stuffed after eating all of this food! However, I still had one more thing… As I mentioned, Penny didn’t really eat her lunch today, so when she requested a green smoothie, I couldn’t say no. The only problem with that is that it serves two. So… green smoothie it was. This green smoothie is really light and delicious. It’s made from one orange, a small piece of lime, pineapple chunks, and a huge handful of spinach. I threw in a few frozen broccoli florets for good measure. It was delicious, but I was stuffed!
What can I say, it was a fun filled food day! I ate a ton, but it’s time for my night cap! A little chocolate before bed.
